Sweet and Swirly

Thank you for visiting my blog! The biweekly sketch challenge at 
Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Challenge #527 runs from Tuesday, October 5, through Saturday, October 16, 2021. The sketch is a required element but we also have an option for you to try, "Script/Text".

I was puzzled about developing the option so used the sketch to inspire my script-y, swirly background. Using a die, I created the background on white cardstock and then brushed on a bit of blue ink. I adhered it to coordinating blue cardstock and then to a white cardstock card base. The sentiment was die-cut from silver glittered cardstock and adhered to a die-cut shadow of the word, "love". The sentiment was added to the card using foam tape. A few small hearts were created with a punch to create the tiny glittered hearts. The inside was decorated with additional hearts.

The Design Team invites you to visit the TSOT527 Blog where you can find additional cards and guidelines. We offer a new biweekly challenge each Tuesday so there is always an active challenge to enjoy.

  1. I laughed at the comment you left on my blog - that I "ran with this sketch"... it is a TOUGH one! I love what you did with this - the background is terrific and such a neat idea!
